Icon Associate Vest 

The absolute finest leather motorcycle vest in the world, the Associate Vest is sleeveless perfection. The Associate is cut with a trim ICON 1000 pattern and constructed from Icon's antiqued drum-dyed cowhide. Tactical black YKK® zippers ensure a lifetime of performance on the open road, while the removable D3O CE certified back protector provides legitimate street insurance. Run it stripped, or if ‘associating’ doesn’t violate your terms, throw your colors on the back.

Excellent vest! I'm 6'4", 190lbs, so it's hard to find jackets and vests that don't fit like a tent on me. A medium fits me perfectly, I can still fit a sweater underneath, and the length ends just on my belt line. I measured both the large and medium sizes and the large is exactly one inch longer than the medium, but the large is substantially wider. The quality of the leather and the lining, pockets, zippers, etc, is outstanding. Not sure what the leather is treated with but I've been in the rain twice with it so far and the water didn't affect it at all. Definitely the coolest clothing item I own now. October 28, 2015
Can't take this vest off I was looking for a leather vest that was a little outside the norm and still looked good. The Associate vest is a great product from Icon. Have not stopped wearing this since I bought it, worn it over t-shirts, shirts, and leather jackets. Fits well, with a bit too ,much room around the belly for me, but that will change over the years I am sure. It wears in very quickly, and has already started to fits more to my shape. I ride everyday, in all weather conditions and have put about 3000km on this since I bought it. Other than wiping off the occasional bug it hasn't been cleaned and has kept its look. It is casual, but definitely something you could put patches on if that was your preference. I definitely think it is worth the investment, and having the built in back protector, which I haven't removed because it is really unobtrusive, is a big plus. September 19, 2015
It's a beautiful vest This vest, like the Roland Sands Colt vest is a beautiful piece or work. The build quality is close to perfect. The vest sits well on your frame and with large arm openings, is designed for comfort of moment. The vest runs right on size for me (185/5'7"). The arm openings are perfect for wearing cold weather gear underneath and would allow for great air flow in warm weather. The main body of the vest is perforated to allow for a cooler ride in warmer weather and the flex panels on the sides allow you to wear your cold weather clothes comfortably underneath. The D3O back protection built in is an absolute plus and is almost invisible to the eye (wear colors and no one will ever know it's there). The vest has three interior pockets on the left - large enclosed vertical zip pocket, small horizontal zip pocket and one large mesh style pocket large enough to hold a small tablet. The right side has only one small horizontal zip pocket that matches one on the right inside panel. I didn't like the two smaller horizontal zip pockets and the lack of what I consider a standard second large pocket on the right side. I don't have large hands and I couldn't get my hand inside the horizontal zip pockets to remove small items carried there. The vest is great looking and comfortable. If you can live with the smaller zippered pockets and no right side large pocket, this is probably the perfect vest for you. July 24, 2015
If you buy only one vest, this is the one. Had the vest now for three years. Like a good Kentucky Bourbon, it gets even better with age. Great leather, excellent craftsmanship and incredibly comfortable. Will withstand extreme abuse and many, many hours of riding, no matter what Mother Nature throws at you. The C3O armor is non intrusive. Air flow is good, if you open the front zipper. I would not recommend this vest in 90+ degree weather. I would like to see a perforated version from ICON.

Ladies cant keep their hands off real leather! Great vest, love the look, and my patches standout great on the quality "distressed" material. They do run a little large, but depending on your build and the size you pick, it shouldnt be a problem. Im 5'11 175lbs, and a large sits great on my shoulders in a tshirt. a little room around my waste, but throw it on over a jacket or sweatshirt, and its snug and comfortable. Its just a joy to wear, and the quality feels as good as it looks. Its tough, and will last you a life time if you maintain it. The price is high, but you have to consider buying a cheap vest, and it wearing out over time, or a one time purchase that gets past on long after you've taken your final ride of life. 5 Stars for Icon stepping up with this awesome vest. July 13, 2015
Awesome quality vest Great vest. Leather is amazing quality as u would expect from icon 1000 series. I would recommend this vest to any street bike or cruiser bike rider. The price is a bit high but you definitely don't get rip off with the quality of the vest and the amount of pockets. Lots of other vests were limited on pockets. September 1, 2014
vest is fantastic, soft leather, great fit, strong zippers Associate vest is the best, fantastic leather, very great fit, strong zippers and solid appearance. Highly reccommend the vest for anyone wanting to attach patches to this leather. April 14, 2014

Alexander K: Hi mate, I am 6ft and 86kg and wear the large. It's big on me, not tight, and MAYBE I could have gone for the medium, but I ride everyday (commute etc) in winter as well as summer so the vest had to fit over some seriously insulated leathers through June-September (I live in the mountains so it gets below 0 Celsius here). Now the weather is warming up it is a little loose over a t-shirt but still looks good. I have about a 43" chest and 34" waist. By the way I am in Australia hence the seasonality not matching up. I am very happy with the large but I would have a think about what you are going to be wearing this with. Hope that helps! Oct 3, 2015

Thomas V: I'm 6' and 200 lbs. Get the large size. You won't be disappointed. Quality product, good looking and fun to where. I've received lots of compliments and feel as safe as one can while riding in a leather vest. Oct 4, 2015

Stephen S: I would recommend a Med, the length should be just right.
The main difference is in the chest. Hope you like it, it's a great vest.

Stephen S: It does not have a holster in the inside pocket. It does have nice pockets that zip closed on both sides large enough for a IPhone 6 plus to fit, or other items. May 11, 2015

Robert P: No...it has a holster pocket (angled pocket) with a zipper. The pocket is not large enough to accommodate a holster. Aug 6, 2015
